    When troubleshooting connectivity issues between clients and the Management Server, it may be necessary to determine which ports are currently open.


    You can determine this using the Telnet command via CMD.

    Telnet format will be:- telnet [domain name/IP] [port]

    NOTE:- A successful connection will result in a blank screen, whereas a failed connection will throw a 'Connect Failed' message.

    Successful connection using port 80
